Onyx RCR Electric Bike

Jun 6, 2018

Category: Rides

Forged with inspiration from the bikes of the ’60s and ’70s, the new electric bike from Onyx is a retro-futuristic racer. Dubbed a “cafe blaster,” Onyx has recrafted a vintage model for modern use, with their RCR electric bike.

Built tough, with the nostalgic, sheer metal look of the retro cafe racers, these tawny and chrome motorbikes pack a punch for an electric vehicle of such modest dimensions. The RCR offers 72 volts of torque, and can reach a top speed of 60 mph. On just one charge, the RCR can venture up to 75 miles, much more than the short jaunts that other electric bikes afford. Onyx declares that the RCR delivers oomph emulous of a full two-stroke engine, through the whole throttle range of three speed modes. Rugged with 17-inch wheels and hydraulic front brakes, the e-bike has some ornamentations of modernity, like an LCD display speedometer.
